If you are confident in your design and development skills, I’m going to burst your bubble. Aviary is a suite of web apps for artists and designers. The software is in Beta and you can use Phoenix, the photo editor, for free.
Really, though, the reason I’m pointing it out to you is because of the image on the home page, as well as the rest of the site design. It’s beautiful and satisfying, especially when you hover over it with your mouse. I was sitting here at my desk, hungry for some bacon and eggs like usual, and then I went to the site and played around with the picture. Strangely, I was no longer hungry. I wasn’t just filled. I was fulfilled.
Don’t ask me what that means.
So, if you are indeed confident in your design and development skills, like I
am was, just take one peek at the site and realize you have a long way to go. I’m not even talking about the software they created, I’m blown away by their website. Honestly, who designs this stuff? Who makes magical images like this? I can’t even get a jpeg to show up where i want it to on the screen and these guys are designing sites that look so tasty I want to lick my Dell monitor.
This video was created using Aviary. I don’t really get it, but it’s neat I guess.
I’m just going to say it. Kiera Knightley is ugly. There, I said it.
If you somehow missed the links in the first few paragraphs, you must not be getting the point. Stop reading this gibberish right now and go to the site. This isn’t about The Gimcrack Miscellany anymore. It’s bigger than you and me. We’re part of something amazing. We have the chance to finally be what we’ve always dreamed we could be. Everything that has ever had meaning, since the universe began, has been leading up
That got old real quick.
BTW that phoenix looks like the new epic mount in WoW. Have you ever seen how fast they go? Like Mach 3. I’m tired of my 55 m.p.h. clunker rust-bucket Griffen.
